Noel Gallagher - Hippes had 40's year to do something...

While it may sound harsh... Noel Gallagher makes some VALID points.

Noel Gallagher comments..."environmentalists: Greens are f***ing hippies with no place in the world. They've been telling us for the last 50 years not to use aerosols or the sky's going to fall in. Well - you're the scientists, do something about it. How do you suggest we get 50million Chinese not to have a fridge? Or get 700million Americans to stop using their big stupid cars. The only way its going to happen is if the sky falls in. Until is does, these Greens are wasting their time. I'm glad - because in 50 years time I'll be dead. » original news

Does this seem "extreme"? or am I being objective - Pollution & Global warming was "end of world" news during the 60's and 70's... What happened to the generations of people who cared and loved? They left the future in the hands of politicians and green groups who told them what to buy and how to act "green" (green washing).

Sound familiar yet? Just wait ... The ME gen got frustrated nothing happened and bought 5,000lb SUV's to drive to 3,000 sqft homes 40 miles from work in a subdivision with no forest or trees in sight... got divorced and doubled the "Eco-Impact".

Seriously look at history and what is in the news right now... will they still care in 5 years or stop after the next presidential election as they did in the past...

Read the "green" news a little, "billions" of dollars being spent... mostly thrown at "pseudo-quick fixes" that ANY objective environmentalists (a real one) will tell you are not "sustainable".

Equal "billions" are being taken from the "scientists" & regulators that hold the key to our sustainable future...

Will "scientists", do something about it? There are far to many "green" groups & activists...

I am proud that I have worked with real "scientists", regulators (EPA & DNR) during this time who HAVE made a real impact over 20 years.(not climatologists, eco-analysts, activists or self proclaimed environmentalists)

Not because it was "in" or "cool" to be green, but because it is the right thing for the Environment & People (yes we both win).

My father recently passed away... hoping that he & other scientists would eliminate the environmental problems he faced in his lifetime, and if we listen to EHS "scientists", regulators ... "we can fix the REAL problems facing our nation, the world & the environment in MY lifetime.

But, if listen to "greenwashing" we will just look back with the disgust of Noel Gallagher.

Happy Thanksgiving,
